Overboard (1987)

The 1987 movie Overboard starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell is a classic to many fans of 80’s movies, tho it didn’t fair to well with critics and ranked in just under $27 million which for the time wasn’t too bad. The story itself has Dean Profitt (Kurt) playing a single father of three kids and carpenter is hired by Joanna (Goldie) to build a closet on her yacht. Joanna is kind of a dick so when the two get into a fight Dean is left angry and unpaid and she leaves.

Joanna, however, ends up falling overboard in an accident and left hospitalized with amnesia. When Dean finds out he decides to get his money one way or the other and pretends to be her husband. This nets him a mother for his kids and a free housewife. The plan starts out fairly well but as we all know in the end, this doesn’t go well for long. The two do of course fall in love because its a romantic comedy after all. It is a great watch for fans of the era but I feel like it doesn’t hold up very well for new fans. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
